If you could find out what the solvent for such an old product, that might work. Otherwise, I would take it off with a cabinet scraper.

Did that once years ago. The adhesive stuck to the paneling and only left scarring on the drywall. Ended up mudding every square inch of 4 walls.

Since drywall is about $8 a sheet, I'd tear off the drywall. seriously.
